In Shinjuku, there are very tiny alleyways with bars only 5-10 people can fit in. La Jetée is run by a tiny woman named Tomoyo who opened the bar 34 years ago. She serves you baby squids and good stories with your drink. (I couldn’t muster up the courage to eat a whole baby squid)

A lot of tiny restaurants in Tokyo have these vending machines. Instead of a waitress taking your order, you order what you want from the vending machine and it prints your order on a ticket. The restaurants are often so tiny that you sit at the bar facing the chefs. You hand him your ticket and they make your order. It’s a brilliant idea because as soon as you are done eating, you can leave and give your spot to the next person in line.
